Sound Coating

John Tolton Plastering Ltd regularly apply sound coating to parting walls in terraced properties to inhibit environmental noise pollution and provide a solution to dampen neighbouring noise.

Types of Sound Coating

We work with four types of sound coating: sand and cement, British Gypsum sound coat, Knauf parge coat and Lafarge sound coat.

If access to your building is restricted, we would recommend using British Gypsum, Knauf or Lafarge sound coat rather than sand and cement because the former 3 are supplied in manageable bags and only require mixing with water. Another advantage over sand and cement is the quick setting time - usually an hour, dependant upon ambient temperature. Furthermore, a cement mixer is not required.

The sound coat is ordinarily applied 6 millimetres in thickness and a key applied to the surface to both disperse sound at different directions and provide adhesion for subsequent applications of plasterboard, etc.
